Stu­dents have de­vel­op­ment day

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

POYN­TON High School re­cently held its first Stu­dent De­vel­op­ment Day.

The event was an op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to take part in ac­tiv­i­ties that wouldn’t fit into a tra­di­tional teach­ing day at school and al­low them to fo­cus on is­sues that af­fect them. Stu­dents, pic­tured, looked at dif­fer­ent types of re­la­tion­ships. There was also a visit from po­lice who told year nine about child sex­ual ex­ploita­tion.

Key Stage four stu­dents fo­cussed at health and well­be­ing through ac­tiv­i­ties such as learn­ing about study skills, food and nu­tri­tion, pi­lates, cir­cuit train­ing, golf and yoga.

More than 45 peo­ple vis­ited to the school in­clud­ing lo­cal busi­nesses, po­lice, golf in­struc­tors, youth work­ers, nurses, Stock­port Mind, Con­nex­ions, Puregym of Stock­port, Shrigley Hall, Every­body Sport and Recre­ation and Able2 Phys­io­ther­apy and Pi­lates. Head­teacher David Waugh said: “The day was a huge suc­cess, pro­vid­ing stu­dents with an al­ter­na­tive, in­ter­ac­tive and en­gag­ing day of ed­u­ca­tion, we would like to thank all of our part­ners who gave their time.”
